When I started this blog in 2009, all my kids were teens and I had just discovered that two of my boys were using heroin. So much has happened since then and the story is contained in these posts
I started this site to voice my own struggles and, primarily, to let other parents of addicts know that they are not alone. There is a vast community of parents & siblings of addicts here on the blogs. If you’re new here, please reach out. Let me know how I can help and if you need assistance getting connected. It is both a blessing (we need community) and a curse (addiction is so common) that we are here together. Let’s keep our eyes on the blessing side as much as we can!
I don’t want my identity centered around being “the parent of an addict.” I am also a fundraiser, writer, musician, creative spirit, a Christian, and just one mom talking. Yet I will always be the mother of addicts as well. Please join me in this journey to healing and wholeness. God bless. ~Connie
